Gastro Grit – Extra Special Grit for Chickens
Stronger Egg Shells and Healthier Hens
What is it?
Gastro-Grit is no ordinary chicken grit! Our gastronomic recipe incudes proteins, herb and vegetable extracts, brewers yeast and much more to support a healthy gastro-intestinal tract and provide the extra calcium and minerals needed for strong egg shells and silky plumage.
What is it for?
Hens don’t have teeth to grind their food, so they need grit to do this job for them. Small stones and shells help to break down the food within their gizzard to aid digestion. Soluble minerals, such as calcium, are also needed in large quantities to help your hens lay eggs with strong shells, and ensure their bones stay healthy. As well as traditional chicken grit ingredients, Gastro-Grit has lots of added extras to support a healthy gut and create an attractive supplement with great palatability. If your hens are laying less than expected or laying soft shelled eggs they will benefit from extra grit in their diets.
